Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
The Five-Year Consolidated Plan is developed by the City to set goals and priorities for the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Opens a New Window. reviews and approves all plans. If significant changes to the plan are necessary, an amendment is also submitted and approved.
Prior to the beginning of each grant year, the City develops a CDBG Annual Action Plan, which HUD reviews and approves. After the end of each program year, the City submits to HUD a Comprehensive Annual Performance & Evaluation Report (CAPER), providing data on the previous year’s program activities and distributions.
*The Five-Year Consolidated Plan includes the Action Plan for the first year of the period.
